'll support the libyan people's efforts to forge a lasting government that represents all of them. and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> eli lake has been out on the libya story from the beginning with what the u.s. knew. he joins us once again with increasing information on this. so, i want you to clear up something. you've been reporting today about the militia and some leaders of that militia in benghazi, who were allied with our mission there, but then said we're done with you because you don't like who we support for our new leadership. was that accurate? were they threatening to pull that work away and leave us less protected? >> that's based on the notes of september 11, 2012 cable that was approved by ambassador chris stevens on sort of the benghazi situation overall. it was one of the most interesting bullet points in the three page cable back to washington and i think it shows that in libya right now, there is an effort to try to build serious national security institutions, but those are very early,
and if they can't make up their mind, how can we know for certain that an islamic government is what we really want? >> and so, senator, why did you choose this way? you were very specific in your criticism. it's not just mitt romney. lindsey graham, john mccain have said they're in favor of arming the rebels in syria. had you already tried to talk to mitt romney and he wasn't listening? >> well, we've had a couple of differences and i support governor romney and think he will make a great president, but on foreign policy, i think there's too much agreement between the republicans and democrats. but i think the people are tired of war. when you talk to republicans or democrats now, i think it's almost universal. people want to come home from afghanistan. you know, there's such great sorrow when you think about our same police and soldiers being helped. so i've seen a great movement in recent weeks towards really wanting to come home and i don't want governor romney to think it is a good thing to appear more bellicose. i think there are more republicans and independents who don't necessarily wa
constituents. when he hits the campaign trail and rails against government spending, his accusations of hypocrisy not only for requests for green pork but also because here's a guy who spent his entire adult life working in government running against government spending. >> how much does this hurt paul ryan? do people understand that distinction? you might not want the stimulus but then when it happens, you got to go fight for your piece of it. does that sell or not? >> in general, i believe the hypocrisy is the unforgiveable sin in politics but this is understandable, because people do get that at the end of the day, part of your job as a congressman isn't just to be a policy wonk, a budget expert, but to fight for the rights of your constituents. that's what paul ryan did. >> last night there was also the exchange about the letters and joe biden said you can write me a letter wherever you want. one of those moments some people hated him for and other people supported him for. you have some of the letters. >> yes. we have four of the letters right here. look, they asked for -- >> ar
, and this is one of the best tools for recruitment for the bad guys. >> when our government is doing something that's wrong, it's up to us as citizens to stand up. >> it is extremely rare for americans to -- protest against the u.s. government, but it's happening in islamabad. >>> to venezuela, president hugo chavez is hoping be re-elected this sunday. this when there is a strong challen challenger. paula newton is in caracas and i asked her what the atmosphere was like. >> reporter: there's a lot of apprehension here leading up to these elections on the weekend. it doesn't matter if you support the opposition or the government. many fear that this election race could be so close that one or the other party may not accept the eventual outcome. chavez himself has hinted that perhaps the opposition will cause trouble if the election is close and they lose. he's being mischievous in saying that. the opposition says we have no intention of causing intention and we'll resign ourselves to defeat if that is what happens. as i said, closely contested election. more so than the last 14 years. >>> gunk. amer
that ultimately, the responsibility for everything that happened in government starts with the commander in chief and works its way down. barack obama's responsible, joe biden's responsible, hillary clinton's responsible and so forth. as to the decision itself, the the vice president was stating a fact. that normal routine matters in terms of how you balance the level of security at 100 plus diplomatic posts around the world, those decisions are made day-to-day, week to week at the state department. so, i don't see a contradiction between what you've said and what the vice president said. >> you didn't think it at all strange last night when asked well, i didn't know anything about it? >> i understood completely this would not be a operational detail that would necessarily come to the white house or to the national security council unless there is a very significant policy issue or dispute. >> peter, first ambassador killed in 33 years in this line of duty in this country. where does the buck stop? >> it should stop in the oval office. i agree in the sense they may not have been briefed with it,
% of americans who he said had relied on the government for support. >> my whole campaign is about helping the middle class have rising incomes and more jobs. and helping get people out of poverty into the middle class. that's what this whole campaign is about. the wealthy are doing fine right now. and they'll do fine most likely regardless of who is elected president. it's the middle class that's having a hard time under president obama. and my campaign is about 100% of the american people. and so that's -- that describes why, you know, what was stated in the tape was not referring to what kind of president i would be or who i would be fighting for. it instead was talking about politics and it just didn't come out the way i meant it. >> walking away from those remarks after a strong debate performance may be helping mitt romney. as new polls now show him drawing closer to president obama in the crucial battleground state of ohio. that's, of course, where john king is. he's in columbus tonight. john, good to see you. i guess the big question would be, what are the latest polls saying. how
